For the first time this season, the Toronto Maple Leafs are out of the playoff picture. Their 6-1 loss last night in Carolina means it’s now the streaking Hurricanes who hold down the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.
Since starting the season 10-4-0, the Leafs have won just four times in regulation and once in overtime. They’ve dropped their last three by a combined score of 18-5.
The Globe and Mail’s James Mirtle was so kind to put Toronto’s struggles since the start of November in chart form:
As you can see, no team has fewer regulation/OT wins than the Leafs, and only the Sabres, Flames and Oilers have amassed fewer points.
Toronto’s in Washington to play the Capitals tonight.
